Janus 0-6-0 diesel
« on: June 23, 2017, 06:14:19 PM »
I have received the following from 'Golden Valley Hobbies' - I have not checked the Forum, so if the details have already been shown, my apologies.

The first batch of our newly tooled Diesel loco - the Yorkshire Engine Co, Janus 0-6-0 is heading towards us from China.

Janus NCB Loco

We expect the model to arrive around the 7th July, dependant on docking and customs. The production batch was split across two shipping containers, so we expect to be able to honour all pre-orders from the first container.

Our second container is on it's way also, and holds our last free stock. So if you want to own the NCB livery we highly recommend pre-ordering today.
Our second livery the British Steel is also close to being sold out, and can also be pre-ordered by clicking on this link.


A production model was flown into the UK ahead of time and is currently circulating amongst the Editors of the major Model Railway magazines.

The DCC Sound fitted model is booked to finish production shortly and so should release during August. We'll then see liveries releasing every 6-8 weeks thereafter. You can hear some of the test sound files which have been recorded and mastered by Legomanbiffo.

Hi Dannyboy,

These are 00 yes?  Or have I missed a fantastic announcement that they are scaling down to N..?

Cheers

Oops! Serves me right for not reading the email properly  :-[. (Why are they sending me details of that gauge?).

It's a bit like eBay. You buy an N gauge locomotive so they think you'll be falling over yourself to buy a tinplate O gauge wagon, three OO carriages and a 1950s tinplate fire engine. Doh!

I just found this thread. Three years on, an N-Gauge Janus can be yours, if you're comfortable making one up from a 3D printed model. Full story over here:
